Our WCW for this week is none other than the Savannah’s own ‘woman-womanly’ Hikmat Baba Dua. A true champion of feminism, driven by her innate passion to serve and inspire change both at the community level and and on the international stage.
Only last month she was honored by The International Literacy Association (ILA), a global advocacy and membership organization dedicated to advancing literacy for all, announced Hikmat Baba Dua, Founding Executive Director of the League of Young Female Leaders from Tamale-Ghana, as an honoree on its second annual 30 Under 30 list. The list recognizes the next generation of young innovators, advocates and educators who are leading efforts to advance literacy for all, whether in their community or around the world. Hikmat was selected for her unique contribution to advancing literacy through her role in championing education for children especially for the girl child. She is currently a Local Coordinator for the HerStory Initiative; a partnership with LitWorld International, Inc. and Global Girls Leading.
